Queen of Sidhe
Fire burns in those deep, cool blue waters
With the subtle glow of the moon in a morning sky
Springs green glides in on those black feathers
And to our ancient home my mind flies
With tattered banner and bloodied hand
On the foaming banks of the ford I stand
My arms upraised, your eyes agleam
My mouth agape and your sword unsheathed
In awe I stand, yet no one sees
As battle rages all 'round me
Bodhrans drum and uilleanns blare
Yet straight into that familiar fire I stare
And those wings of rapture pull me on
And fetters free my heart of all
That sovereign gaze instilling me
With thoughts of total victory
Dreams of gold and warming hearth
Of greener pastures, of joy and mirth
Within the eyes of that queen of sidhe
Please give your flag and sword to me!

Song of the Morrigna
I am a river
in a concrete cage
my flow of life withheld from me.
I am a mountain
with a deep coal seam
eviscerated remains choke my family.
I am the carcass
of a rotting crow
eternal plastic glaring from between the bones.
I am the mother
of the countless slain
sons and daughters for your ill got gain.
Who can tell
where you and I begin?
Who knows where
or when we'll
fall apart?
How long will
we be one
Will you end
before I start?

Dark Streets
An opaque obsidian obscuring all senses
A menses of granite,
grating away the channels of mind
Eroding the foundations of faith and hope
And all the walls that trust had lined.
The air - a choking black -
cloaking these streets in a dream
where nothings seen
but the glare from the stars
of mechanical minds.
A voice whispers starkly
in your ears from behind :
"Though the winds of despair hound your tail
And heavy chains weigh your heart
Nothings here on these roads
that will tear you apart
save all but the frigid fear
caged within
that you keep.
Breath in through the nose
and out through the teeth."

Plato's Cave
I've made friends with those bones
in the catacombs
whispering slowly while the candle flickered
casting shadows
on that cold grey stone.
I tread slowly down those dusty halls,
pebbles of sand sliding down the sides of an hourglass
as I walked.
I paused for a second, hearing
the gentle drip of water
drop through air
and mix with earth
while the candles fire
grew ever brighter,
casting shadows ever darker,
revealing blackness
I never'd seen before.
Lest I forsake Eurydice,
I turned and left that place.
The gleaming light beyond the gate
showed its glow
upon my face.
But all I saw was overcast
as if the sun had never shone -
The shadows on the cavern wall
are more apparent than before.

Untitled, 12/13/2013
Two score and eight moons
Overcast with heart-wounds
That final eclipse - it was finished.
Threefold by three, so I'll let it be
Waiting on stars to guide me
Like war seasons past
When I vanquished each task
Banner soaring as brass carnyx roared!
I sated the crows with each carrion beast
Yet now from a pennant I'm released.
Whither wander I -Between land, sea, or sky?
One will crumble - one rise - one will fall.
Threefold by three, at peace I will be
Waiting on stars to guide me.

:ahoy: Hi,
Sorry to take so long getting back to you. The black dog's been having me take it for lots of walkies lately. It's back in its kennel for the moment. Can describe that land your parents own for me so I can get a better idea of any suggestions that might be useful. What type of soil it has, is it sloping, is there any watersource, is there anything growing there at the moment? That sort of thing.
There's three main things you have to consider, your resources, the soil quality (how to improve and maintain it), and water. A permaculture system as you would already know, is about creating a self-sustaining organic system which requires no inputs from outside the system. In getting started however you may have to import soil conditioning materials to improve soil quality. For example if the soil is sandy you may have to spread soil wetteners, and clay on the areas you will be planting with crops or trees. To improve the nutrient levels in the soil introduce crops of legumes such as peas and then plough these back into the ground. Then grow a feed crop such as lucerne and introduce some livestock that will return the crop to the soil as nutrient rich manure. Of course they will also be providing you with produce in the form of milk, wool, mohair etc depending on what you introduce.
Another import element is crop rotation. This...It's 3.30 in the morning, I'll get back to you on this :nod: Merry Samhain :rudolph: by the way, although in this neck of the woods it's more like Beltaine.
